I appreciate your concern but please check the Dr. Solomon
or Network Associates/McAfee websites prior to sending these
warnings along.

The bud frogs thing is a hoax virus warning. There is no
such virus. This warning has been circualating for a long
time in it's various forms. I have received warnings of it
at least 2 dozen times.

See:

http://vil.nai.com/villib/dispVirus.asp?virus_k=10579

Please realize these warnings have a pyramid effect that is
passed on in ever increasing numbers and eventually could
theoretically shut the internet down! Fortunately most folks
are in the know about hoax viruses and false alerts and now
you are in the know too. 

Dr. Solomon or McAfee/Network Associates. You can access
their free websites at:

http://www.nai.com/
http://www.drsolomon.com/home/home.cfm

Please browse these sites and you'll become fully informed
about real versus hoax viruses.

Sincerely,

Marc S. Nameth
